Tanker drops off injured crew member

A Liberian gas tanker delivered an injured crew member yesterday.

The Gaschem Orca contacted Bermuda Radio yesterday afternoon after a 42-year-old Filipino national suffered a severe hand injury on board.

At the time the vessel, which was travelling from Houston, Texas, to Teesport, UK, was about 300 nautical miles west of the island.

Bermuda Radio said: “The master of Gaschem Orca was given medical advice, and the patient was safely transferred to the pilot/rescue boat St David at 9.20am and transferred to the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital by ambulance.”
